UK CEO Shortlisted Recognised In Global Tech Influencer List

Zandra Moore
Co-Founder and CEO of Leeds-based Panintelligence, Zandra Moore has had an impressive career in the technology sector spanning over 20 years. Her infectious passion for helping businesses drive performance with data and analytics has seen her become well known in the UK and European technology and business industries in recent years.

Zandra is now making her mark in the national and global tech field after recently receiving several recognitions in tech industry awards. Most recently shortlisted for ‘Role Model of The Year: Tech & Services SME’ and ‘IT Leader of the Year’ categories in the UK’s Women in Tech Excellence Awards in which she was up against thousands of entrants.

Coming from humble beginnings, Zandra originally started her career in HR before moving on to sales and tech over 20 years ago. Her inspiration comes from her mother, who fell into the technology sector after applying for a job advert in The Yorkshire Post for the first internet service provider in the North - without having any idea what the internet was. Her mum went on to have an impressive career in the tech industry, which saw her work her way up to head of international sales at a large corporate. So, like mother like daughter, Zandra was inspired to follow in her mum’s footsteps in the tech industry.

Zandra Moore commented “I decided to move into self-employment after having children as I wanted to have the flexibility around my family, which wasn’t possible to do at that time in the tech industry. So I opened my own software solutions consultancy business. After doing some work for Panintelligence as a client, I saw an opportunity for working on a product and team that I loved and ended up doing a management buyout, bought the IP in 2014 and have been growing the business ever since”.

Another achievement for Zandra recently was gaining global recognition in Rivery’s, Top 21 Influencers in Data of 2021 - which features pioneers, entrepreneurs, and rising stars from all over the world in the field of data and analytics - all of whom are highlighting the power of data, helping people understand data and how they can use it in new ways.

The recognition on Rivery’s influencer list comes after a plethora of awards and recognitions in the past few years for Panintelligence and Zandra personally. She’s also recently been shortlisted in the IT Leader of the Year and Role Model of the Year: Tech & Services SME categories in the Women in Tech Excellence Awards 2021, which takes place on Wednesday 24 November.
